Paraffin Bath

Return to Glossary Listing

Paraffin Bath
For hands, feet and spot treatments. Reduces swelling in muscles and decreases inflammation of joints and connective tissues. Softens and moisturizes skin. Warm paraffin creates a heat-maintaining barrier over the skin that holds the heat for 10-15 minutes. The heat causes the pores of the skin to open, generates perspiration (like a mini-sauna) and allows moisturizers and essential oils to penetrate into the skin more readily.
